For most DVD players, no. Most DVD players need a DVD-R that have been formatted with a program like iDVD or other DVD authoring packages. These programs write a special format (UDF) and convert the MPEG files into VOB files.

For some DVD players, yes. Some DVD players can read the files on ISO formatted CD-Rs and DVD-Rs. This method doesn't require special software or converting the files. Also most computers will read and play such files.

I know it sounds a tad confusing, think about it in terms of burning an audio CD. You can download MP3 files and burn them to a CD. Most computers can play those files, some CD players can read and play MP3 files, but most CD players require a special audio CD format.
